ElkShape Podcast EP 42- Justin Grimes
Today we talk frontal shots on elk. We get into Justin's 7 year elk hunting learning curve and the story of his first bull on public land with an over-the-counter tag. Justin has worked behind the counter of an archery pro shop for years and has seen it all. We go over tried and true equipment for elk including arrow rest selection, string selection, and common pitfalls of archery technique. Like all our episodes, we bring on ordinary people with extraordinary knowledge. Enjoy.

I want everyone to make it happen and commit to the idea of coming out West. Regardless if you fly or drive the 2,000 miles one way, you'll never regret it! We sit down with a guy who is a hard...
